The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini are here. The phones are an incremental upgrade over the iPhone 12 series and are powered by Apple’s new A15 Bionic chip. The company is releasing the two phones in five color options and three storage variants. It’s also ditched the 64GB model, and instead, the 128GB model will now act as the base version.
